Subscribe To Game Of Thrones Showrunners Break Silence On Final Season And Coffee Cup 'Embarrassment' Updates
Game of Thrones’ showrunners have broken their silence on the final season and the “embarrassment” of the coffee cup mistake. The controversial and divisive last chapter saw its share of issues. Earlier this year, Dan Weiss and David Benioff planned to attend 2019 San Diego Comic-Con after it aired. They ended up not going. Many cast members still went and discussed the season.
In a new interview, Game of Thrones' showrunners address the mess-up that was that much-speculated-about rogue coffee cup. They also talk about the final season and the show’s record-breaking Emmy nominations. First things first, it is time for some coffee chat. On that mistake, Dan Weiss and David Benioff told BS10 Star Channel:
Of course, the internet never forgets. So it has remained an unintentional yet highly memorable part of Game of Thrones’ final season.
There was also the issue of Game of Thrones’ much-anticipated battle being challenging to see. That did bother Dan Weiss quite a bit, according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Enough about the lows. Game of Thrones’ showrunners also discussed the Emmy nominations the final season received. Dan Weiss and David Benioff said:
In a final season that received ample criticism, there is one aspect that many fans will probably agree with David Benioff about. The Game of Thrones showrunner acknowledged a Season 8 scene that stands out for him. Benioff said:
I have to agree about that scene’s emotional impact. Hence, the thrill of Gwendoline Christie’s nomination. Fans will have to wait and see how her nomination turns out when the Emmys air on September 22.
